Museum at FIT, item #P88.28.1 c1830 green silk satin afternoon dress. English. The deeply saturated color of the dress represents a tendency towards the use of darker, more vivid hues. Traditionally symbolizing nature, the color green, with its connotations of luck in Ireland and sanctity in the Islamic religion, is reflective of the “exoticism” that was popular during the Romantic periods.

1830-1834 Sleeves of this size had to be supported as they were often made of flimsy fabric. Some styles had stiff buckram undersleeves or hoops to give them their shape. The sleeves shown here are unlined, so the wearer probably attached a large down-filled pad to each arm just below the shoulder line to distend them. Feathers can be easily compressed so the pad could be squeezed through the narrow armhole of the dress.
